    Microsoft is reportedly testing big changes for Windows 10 and Shell


    Microsoft has been rumoured to be working on a stripped down version of Windows for dual-screen devices. As per reports, Microsoft’s new modular operating system is internally called Windows Lite and it should power the first foldable device from the company.

    Microsoft is also working on multiple shells to optimize the behaviour of Windows Lite/ Windows Core OS across various form factors, including dual-screen devices, Surface Hub or even HoloLens.

    Yesterday, Windows 10 Build 18917 shipped to the Fast Ring and it comes with an interesting change that Microsoft did not announce. Twitter user Albacore claims that Windows 10 20H1 (Spring 2020 Update) lays the foundation for a big update that would separate Shell from the rest of Windows.

    In Windows 10 20H1, there’s a Shell Update Agent which will be upgradable and independent of the operating system. This is part of Microsoft’s long rumoured plan to separate the base OS and the Shell.

    The component Shell Update Agent can also obtain and update the shell on demand.

    He also discovered mention of “Undocked Shell” and this term was last used when Microsoft decoupled Windows Search and Cortana in Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

    The company also appears to be working on another change to replace current Settings sycn with a new one that is more advanced and supports options such as File Explorer configuration. In Windows 10 20H1 preview builds, File Explorer has been tweaked to update your Pins to a different/newer(?) format and it could be part of the whole new upgradable Shell experience.

    The new shell experience is still in the early days of development, but Windows 10 can already try to source Action Center from a Shell package if available.

  2. Microsoft Selects Dolby Audio for Windows 10

    it would've been great if microsoft added HEVC decoders, LAV filters along with other codecs with Windows 10, and developing WMP to be better than VLC, KMPlayer and such sorts of media players.

    Nevertheless, this is good step for microsoft, by far.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
